Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

Privacy: Amobee user tracker found on some tests from Airtel users [India]

Author: Nikhil Pahwa, Medianama, Published on: 19 August 2015

A report from human rights organization Access indicates that in some cases, Indian telecom operator Bharti Airtel was inserting a “tracking header” in the connections of some users. While the data sample is clearly very small – only four tests from Airtel were confirmed as being tracked by Access over a six month period, it is also dependent on users testing their own connection on Access’ AmIBeingTracked.com tool...

...An Airtel spokesperson sent the following statement in response, which doesn’t address the questions [sent to the company by Medianama]:

“We take customer privacy laws/ rules very seriously and do not track our customers’ journey online. Specifically, we do not use super cookies on our network. Infact – www.amibeingtracked.com, the testing website created by Access, validates this and confirms that the Airtel network does not track its customers’ data.”
